Animal Production Conference: co-creating the future of animal production
What should the animal production of the future look like? In the coming decades, Europe hopes to become carbon neutral, antibiotic use should be reduced and nutrient losses minimised. These goals can only be achieved through science, innovation in new technologies and the commitment of the sector to respond to the needs and interests of consumers. That is why, on 12 and 13 May, the Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology (IRTA) is organising the "Animal Production Conference: co-creating the future of animal production" at the PortAventura Business & Events Convention Centre in Vila-Seca, Tarragona. The aim is to debate and update knowledge in the different areas of work dedicated to meeting the new challenges facing livestock farming and aquaculture, to facilitate their transition towards a more sustainable system and to incorporate the One Health approach. Seating is limited and tickets must be booked through the event’s website. The full programme of presentations can be consulted at this link.
